Reflections on Fathers Day about being a dad and having a dad and the strange mix of what that all means.
On being a dad, I can only say that it is an experience that teaches me my limitations better than any other, and it also encourages me to try harder because that kid is worth it. I never knew what it was to be stretched and expanded the way that parenthood has been.
And I see my friends' stories of dads who weren't there or whose dads left scars and grief in their wake. I'm sad that's the only reference they will have for that relationship.
May all dads who see this rise to the challenge and give their kids the best they've got. Happy Fathers Day.
